The Drive Against Prostate Cancer
On July 10th and 11th, the Oregon Urology Foundation sponsored a free screening clinic at Valley River Mall. We saw nearly 1000 patients!
Thank you to everyone who helped make this event happen.
The Project founded by ZERO (http://www.zerocancer.org) to End Prostate Cancer understands it's hard enough with busy schedules for men to fit in regular doctor visits, but early detection is critical. That's why we operate the Drive Against Prostate Cancer (the Drive), the only nationwide, mobile, free prostate cancer testing program. The Drive vehicles are sleek 39-foot mobile screening units, touring the country from coast to coast to offer free prostate cancer testing and an experience that provides a comfort factor often lacking in your traditional doctor's office.
About the Free Prostate Cancer TestingEarly detection of prostate cancer consists of a simple blood test (prostate specific antigen blood test) and an optional physical exam.
